  • A wonderful museum with enough information in English for those, like me, with no German. The exhibitions give great insight into the development of Germany since 1945. I have been back several times and taken visitors.
  • Perfect for Historians From 1945 on words it's well documented and one can spend hours there, it's great for older kids but below 8 it's more perusing through. For adults perfect to go alone so as to enjoy.
